I am sorry Kate, I think I did get the information from you. I was very involved in trying to prove my ancestry for DAR about 3 or 4 years ago. I had a baby 2 years ago and everything I was working on stopped. I have just started back up and saw your email message and got excited (not remembering I already wrote to you). I sent in my application to DAR before I had the baby, and they denied it because the link between Frances Oden and Sarah Terrell Oden wasn't conclusive. I submitted a paper (from Ethel Patillo's file) that showed who Sarah's siblings were, but they said it wasn't clear enough. The same paper was even in a DAR application file of someone who applied in the 1930s and became a member. I have been told that today they are more particular. Do you have any other documentation that links them? Like a will or something? Let me know. Thanks! Jean
